LRS student information form

The LRS Student Waitlist Form is now open. This form is only required for students who are NOT registered.

Attendance at lectures and discussions is required.

Lectures: Thursdays 2:00-3:20pm (in Week 1, Tuesday AND Thursday 2:00-3:20pm)

Discussions (Week 2-10): Tuesdays at 9:30-10:50am, 2:00-3:20pm, or 3:30-4:50pm

What do I do if I didn't get a spot during course selection?

If the course is full (or if your desired discussion time is full), you may place yourself on the waitlist on this page, which will open January 2.  By Friday of Week 1 (January 11), we will notify those on the waitlist if a spot has opened up in their desired section. Electronic consent requests through my.UChicago will not be granted apart from the LRS waitlist form process.

In the meantime, we ask waitlisters to attend the first two lectures on January 8 and 10 from 2:00-3:20pm, as we will be taking attendance. The first assignment will be due Sunday, January 13, and discussion sections will begin meeting Tuesday of Week 2 (January 15).

What if I got a spot, but now that discussion time doesn't work for me? Am I still guaranteed a spot?

If the course is still open, and you see an open spot in another section that works for you, you are welcome to switch to that section. However, after January 2, we will close all sections to new registrations. If after that time you learn you have a time conflict, we ask that you drop your spot in the course and place yourself on the waitlist form on this page, where you'll be able to indicate the times you prefer. (Please do not request electronic consent through my.UChicago.) Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee you'd still get a seat. You'll be notified by Friday, January 11 if a space in your desired section time opens up.

Please write your last name here.
Please write your first name here.
Note: We need your *UChicago* email so we can enter you into Canvas and confirm your identity on the University's registration list.

During Autumn quarter, LRS lecture meets Thursday from 2:00-3:20pm. Required discussion sections (seminars) meet at one of three times.

In Week 1 only, lecture will meet on BOTH Tuesday and Thursday from 2:00-3:20pm.

Beginning in Week 2, small-group discussions (seminars) will meet on either Tuesday or Wednesday, and the plenary lectures will occur every Thursday from 2:00-3:20. All registered students must be able to attend the Thursday lectures as well as a small-group seminar at one of the following times.

Thank you!
